Beefed up: Demand for new flavors and all-natural jerky will support industry growth


Meat Jerky Production
Meat jerky products have proven to be resilient over the five years to 2018. Despite the falling price of red meat during the current period, growth in per capita meat consumption helped boost industry revenue. Furthermore, product innovation has been the primary driver of revenue growth over the past five years. Traditional jerky products were viewed by many consumers as unhealthy, full of artificial flavors, preservatives and overloaded with sodium. Major players in the industry have battled this perception by launching several products emphasizing the artisanal nature of jerky products. Overall, the industry’s small-scale nature, relatively low prices and innovative flavors and content have led revenue to increase during the current period. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is anticipated to continue increasing due to new product developments and increased demand from consumers looking for convenient food and new, exciting flavors.
